Last year more than 900 Berkshire County residents of all ages and backgrounds took to the street and walked a mile united against rape, sexual assault and gender violence.
Over $90,000 was raised to support Elizabeth Freeman Center’s life-saving services.

This year Elizabeth Freeman Center takes the Walk virtual!  They need your help to make this year’s Walk A Mile as memorable and successful as ever.

Here’s how you can participate:

Spread the word that EFC is here, open and ready to help;

Take photos and videos at various Walk a Virtual Mile displays and share on social media with #WereHereWeWalk to join Elizabeth Freeman Center in spreading awareness about sexual and domestic violence in Berkshire County;

Walk a Virtual Mile goes on between Tuesday, September 8th and Friday, September 18th;

Register Here and help the center raise funds with your family, coworkers and friends;

Donate so that we can raise the funds that we desperately need to continue to fight gender-based violence.

Elizabeth Freeman Center is OPEN! Their hotline number answered 24/7. Also their offices are open to help with emergencies, receive walk-ins, provide basic assistance, i.e. food, shelter, safe phones and transportation, and help with forms and protection orders.

In addition, the shelter is open and they continue to motel survivors fleeing danger when our shelter is full.

Help Elizabeth Freeman Center to continue to provide these life-saving services and donate today.
